Default Door lock problem, only drivers side works

Hello all have a quad cab 03 Ram, problem has just started in the past couple of days. Only the drivers door power lock works. will work by FOB or door master switch either one. Have checked for broken wires in door post, did not find any. Other strange thing is front passenger side lock switch works drivers lock only but not itself. make me think not a broken wire from drivers side. any thoughts anyone?

All the door lock controls go through the cluster. Worse case scenario is that your cluster has gone poof. It's highly unlikely that all your actuator &/or switches went bad at the same time, so I'm guessing worst case scenario here.

Correct. Our trucks do not have relays for the door locks, so it's all through the main cluster.

My 2003 had a similar problem and I changed out all 4 wiring harnesses in the door to the door frame, now I have another problem that the driver door switch is the only one that works most of the time. Maybe it is the cluster as well, how do you change the cluster?
